Baby Cliniclogo

All children under 5 are seen regularly by the Health Visitors, who also carry out developmental checks at appropriate intervals. Routine immunisations are a most important part of preventative care for children, and we strongly recommend that your child has all the immunisations offered.

These are routine clinics run by your GP who check your child’s health and development at eight weeks of age. The first immunisations and the pre-school booster are given at this clinic.
